to see that widespread over north carolina or virginia right now on this current track. it will mostly be a coastal event, coastal beach erosion. there may be scattered power outages. if this continues on this track, and we're hoping it's making a north-northeasterly turn and running parallel to the coast and farther away, we will see minimal damage. again, it's still too early to tell. we've got to wait for it to continue to make that turn before it settles in. >> al, many thanks. appreciate your time and being out there in the weather for us. you can see al roker on the weather channel and obviously on the "today" show in the morning. >>> joining us now is the head of the federal emergency management agency, craig fugate. i know your time is precious right now. what is the latest that fema knows about hurricane earl? if you could update us on anything al didn't cover in terms of what areas you're expecting to potentially have a significant impact from this storm. >> i think he covered it. pretty much the outer banks of north carolina to nantucket and the outer banks in massachusetts.
and virginia and the outer band still off the coast and it's going to be making its way in as we go into the overnight hours. and we are also going to be seeing a cold front. yes, that's what you are seeing. a cold front is going to be push in. a cold front and hurricane earl. here's the wider view i wanted to show you. you can see that eye and boy, that eye is really getting it act together. the storm getting its act together. this will start to weaken a little bit as it starts to move closer to us. but the bad news is, it is still going to be a major hurricane. it is a category 4. the forward movement is north, northwest at 16 miles an hour. it's 633 miles away west, southwest of bermuda. we are looking at that. but also check out what's happening. so it gets to ocean city, like i said, it will encounter some sheer. it will weaken it and also run into cooler water and that weakens it as well. forecast at 115 miles an hour. that's still a category 3. then it's going to get out of here, head into the north. and then we are going to be looking much better as we go into the weekend. h
seaboard. it could be impacting the north carolina-virginia area as a category three storm by as early as tomorrow evening. hurricane warnings are up and the storm will continue to weaken as it skirts the eastern seaboard, new england could be impacted as well. if you have travel plans for the holiday weekend, stay tuned to hurricane earl. here is what it looked like in the bay area, a hot afternoon inland with 97 degrees in concord. half moon bay, 75 degrees. so a nice warm one along the coast. 84 in san francisco. look at santa rosa, down sloping winds, 96 degrees there. san jose, 94. oakland got up to 90 degrees. certainly the warmup we expected and we're not done with the heat just yet. numbers is still warm, 70s and 80s across most of the bay area. not as warm at the coast. cooling trend heading into the weekend. watch what happens to the fog, it's going to stay off the coast and continue to skirt off our coastline. tomorrow morning, its clear mild start. temperatures in the 50s to the mid-60s. offshore flow, not quite as strong as it was today so slightly cooler at our coastline.
. >> lehrer: finally tonight, hurricane earl. north carolina, virginia, and maryland declared emergencies today, as the hurricane approached with winds of 135 miles an hour. the big storm, seen from the international space station, was still 700 miles off cape hatteras, north carolina, late today, but evacuations were under way along the exposed outer banks. >> when they said they wanted the visitors to leave today from hatteras, we decided the best thing to do for the locals is get out of the way. >> lehrer: the state's beaches were already empty, buildings were being boarded up, and some people worried they were overdue for disaster. >> people feel it's time for the big one. >> lehrer: forecasters still expected early to turn north as it reaches the outer banks late tomorrow or early friday. the projected track then takes it parallel up the coast. as a result, the national hurricane center issued a hurricane warning for most of the north carolina coast and a hurricane watch extended to delaware. the coast guard again flyovers along the eastern seaboard warning shimz at sea of the coming
richmond, from virginia beach. but there will be damage along the north carolina outer banks. there may even be some damage in new england and we'll, obviously, see some of that as the days go on. anderson? >> we want to check back in with you. i do want to go to kill devil hills, which sits on a very thin strip of land on either side of hurricane earl. rob, you're the closest to the storm. what do you expect tonight? what are people there doing? >> reporter: well, a lot of people have gotten out of here. evacuation orders went out, especially south of here, where it's a little bit thinner, as chad mentioned, and over-washing of the highways there a distinct possibility. in 2003 when hurricane isabel came through, it cut a whole new patch right through the road. it took them weeks to rebuild that. they don't want to cut people off from society. what happened today was really a slow ramp up to what we see now, almost tropical storm strength gusts. that is about it. the rain is now starting to come down. as chad probably mentioned, the center of this storm is probably about 100 miles, may
of the united states. it's still a category one right now. it's moved past north carolina and virginia, past maryland and delaware. you can see it's moving toward new jersey and new york and then new england. we'll update you on what we know. that's coming up. stand by. much more on hurricane earl as it moves in a northerly direction. >>> let's get to our strategy session right now. joining us our two cnn political contributors, democratic strategist james carville and the republican strategist ed rollins. james, i'll start with you. this quote jumped out at me when i was reading the "new york times", a story entitled fewer young voters see themselves as democrats. the college vote is up for grabs this year. though many students are liberals on social issues, the economic reality of a weak job market has taken a toll on their loyalties. far fewer 18 to 29-year-olds now identify themselves as democrats compared with 2008. i guess the silver lining there for you, james, is that far fewer young people vote than older people. >> and also, the youth vote had been turned into democratic in 2004. a
. alexandria, virginia. democrats line. you are on. go ahead, please. ellis, speak up or we have to move on. caller: i am speaking up. host: what do you have to say? caller: nobody should be too big to fail. host: de have anything more to add? caller: the reason i think these people should be allowed to fail is because already the government has already bailed them out. and at this point, we are still working on bailing them out, yet they do't seem to be helping anybody else out here in this economy right now. and they are actively lobbying right now in congress to try to get to -- republicans get back to office. part of this deal. it is all partisan. and it is all about politics. and what is going to come down to in the end is they say they don't want it to be failing -- ok, the republicans don't, but yet the democrats are saying they are trying to restrict this now so nobody can be too big to fail. and what we will end up is these big companies are going to get their money back, they will all buy into their way and they will -- obviously what we are looking at, where we were before. then
